    Jim Seals and Dash Crofts, March 16, 1975. | Warner Brothers Records/Public DomainThis month marks the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which made abortion-on-demand the law of the land. It also marks the 45th anniversary of what is arguably the most courageous act in pop culture history.In the early 1970s, the Texas-born duo of Jim Seals and Dash Crofts was at the peak of their popularity. After spending a few years in a band with Glen Campbell, among others, they began to perform under the name “Seals and Croft.”It took a few years, but eventually they hit it big....

    On Friday the Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services finally announced that it found California violated the federal conscience protection laws. This is the first time since the launch of the new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division one year ago that OCR has found a violation under these laws. Several pregnancy resource clinics in California complained that the state of California had fined them for refusing to refer others to, and advertise, abortion clinics. In 2015, California adopted the Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency Act, which required pregnancy resource centers to essentially...

    Editor's note: The following are excerpts from the remarks Congressman Smith delivered at the 46th annual March for Life. Thank you, President Trump, for making it absolutely clear today that you will veto any piece of legislation that undermines or nullifies any pro-life policy, regulation, or rule.Your extraordinary announcement—your bold solidarity with the weakest and most vulnerable—couldn’t come at a better time.The new Democratic majority in the House has made it clear that they want to eviscerate all pro-life protections including the Hyde taxpayer abortion funding ban which alone has saved over 2 million people from death by abortion.Mr. President, be assured...

    Among the tens of thousands assembled in Washington for the 46th annual March for Life was conservative pundit and headliner Ben Shapiro. Shapiro’s speech started with highlighting the noteworthy American ideals of “life and liberty,” urging Americans to move forward by protecting such values for the unborn. “America was founded on the promise of God-given rights. Chief among them was life and liberty,” Shapiro said. “While America has imperfectly fulfilled that promise, we always move forward to for the perfection of that promise.” “We built the country for our children,” Shapiro added. “We built our lives for our children. And...

Sarsour and Mallory hosted the rally to show their support for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, one of the women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Both Sarsour and Mallory shared remarks before turning over the microphone to Warren, who said that she believes Ford's testimony.

Vice President Pence spoke in person at the march, calling Trump a “champion” for abortion opponents....

    ""Third Trimester Late Term Abortion Bill Backed by Northam, Fairfax, Herring, Democratic Legislators"" Democratic leaders backed legislation repealing restrictions on third trimester late term abortions, repealing clinic health and safety standards, and eliminating informed consent requirements, among other provisions. They noted the measures were unlikely to pass in 2019, but vowed to enact them if Democrats take the Virginia House and Senate in November's elections. On Thursday in Richmond, Democratic leaders announced their support for a sweeping repeal of abortion restrictions in Virginia, including deregulation of third trimester late term abortions up until the moment of birth. The press conference,...
  • Fifth Circuit Ruling Dismantles Planned Parenthood Talking Points

    01/17/2019 7:33:13 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 7 replies
    A ruling issued tonight by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has torpedoed several of the abortion-rights movement’s key talking points in defense of Planned Parenthood. The case dealt with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission’s decision to terminate the state’s Medicaid provider agreements with Planned Parenthood affiliates across the state. The state based its decision to remove Planned Parenthood from the list of eligible Medicaid providers in large part on a series of undercover videos released in the summer of 2015 showing footage of Planned Parenthood executives and doctors admitting to illegally profiting from the sale of the...

    The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a ruling that allows Texas to strip Planned Parenthood of its Medicaid funding.... to have Planned Parenthood removed as a qualified Medicaid provider following the release of several damning undercover videos, should come as a major blow to not just the abortion provider, but also the press. Four years later, we learn from the 5th Circuit that the videos were neither selectively edited, nor was it false to say that Planned Parenthood associates circumvented legal, medical, and ethical guidelines in pursuit of salvaging human remains. The ruling shatters the claim that the...

    Days after an immigration judge denied Layidua Salazar’s petition to remain in the United States in 2015 because she was not living with her spouse, she learned at an annual visit to Planned Parenthood that she was pregnant. The possibility that she would not be allowed to stay in the country made her realize "within five minutes" that she couldn’t continue her pregnancy and risk her family being separated at some point, she said. "I can’t do both. Can’t be in the middle of deportation proceedings and be pregnant," said Salazar, who is now a storyteller with We Testify, a...

And God will pay us back for what we do.” (Proverbs 24:11-12—Contemporary English Version) Since 1973 when two women, prompted (some might say, used) by their activist radical women’s rights attorneys, challenged laws prohibiting abortions and won, more than 50 million unborn and nearly born babies have been killed. That is nearly 15% of the current population of the United States. Fifty million babies...
  • New poll shows millennials will change position on Roe when given the facts

    Christian Post ^ | 01/17/2019 | Julie Roys
    Pro-choice advocates consistently forward the narrative that the majority of the American public does not want to overturn Roe v. Wade. And to some degree, surveys and polls agree. For example, a 2018 poll reported in Vox found that 67-percent of Americans would not like to see Roe overturned, and only 29-percent would. However, a survey released Monday shows that support for Roe v. Wade is based largely on ignorance. When educated about the realities of abortion, opposition to the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion rises sharply. The survey conducted by Students for Life of America’s Institute for Pro-Life...
  • New York Bill Allowing Abortions Up to Birth Says a Person is Only “A Human Being Who Has Been Born”

    LifeNews.com ^ | 1/16/19 | MICAIAH BILGER
    New York’s leaders are pushing an extreme pro-abortion bill that will strip away all protections for unborn babies and some for mothers, too. The “Reproductive Health Act” redefines a “person” as “a human being who has been born and is alive,” according to Breitbart.The state bill also describes abortion as a “fundamental right.” This language will allow unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth in New York. It looks like it will pass in the new Democrat-controlled state legislature this winter. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has threatened to hold up the budget until it does. The...

    Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., this week reintroduced his Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a move that comes just days before the official start of the 37th annual March for Life. “Everybody loves babies, and that love has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with just having a heart,” the Republican senator said in a statement. It added, “This legislation is an opportunity for Congress to find consensus built on common sense, compassion, science, and a simple fact: every baby deserves a fighting chance at life. Providing care for newborns is more important than partisan political divides. Every...

    Speaking at Barnard College last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo vowed to expand New York’s liberal abortion laws during the first 30 days of the current legislative session. His vehicle for doing so, the Reproductive Health Act, is certain to become law now that Democrats are firmly in control of both chambers. Standing beside Cuomo, a beaming Hillary Clinton proclaimed: “Advancing the rights of women and girls is the great unfinished business of the 21st century.” Not bringing peace to a world besieged by war and terrorism, mind you. Not eliminating poverty on a planet where it abounds; Not curing deadly...

    The Catholic Herald (UK) ^ | 1/14/19 | Emily Benson
    Officials at the New York State Catholic Conference are calling the Reproductive Health Act “worse than we thought it would be.” “It foresees a time in New York where it’s a crime to be pro-life,” said Kathleen Gallagher, director of pro-life activities and the Catholic Action Network for the conference, which is the public policy arm of the state’s Catholic bishops. The measure, introduced in the Legislature the week of January 7, will expand access to abortion in the state, despite being promoted as simply codifying Roe v Wade. It not only increases access to abortion across the board, including...

    Jeff Sessions, ousted as President Trump’s attorney general this week, is contemplating a run for his old Alabama Senate seat in 2020 against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones -- though those who know Sessions aren't convinced he will ultimately pull the trigger on another campaign. A source close to the former attorney general told Fox News that Sessions is “considering it but his mind isn't made up.” That person added that Sessions, known for his stances on illegal immigration and trade, “was advocating for the Trump agenda back when it was called the Sessions agenda.” Others, though, don’t see Sen. Sessions...
